A few days later...

How have I been doing since I ended the SPPP? I actually have done ok. That is until my husband left on his business trip.

I am physically tired taking care of everything while he is gone and I haven't done so well on my veggie intake all because of prep time and planning. I have pretty much stayed away from 'bad foods' and I still have a smoothie in the morning. My smoothies have more spinach in them than ever and they are actually green.

Anyhow, if I grab some type of fast food, I have stuck with salads and chicken. I have found my stomach 'smaller' and I can't eat as much as I used to. However, today I ate this and all of it. Yummy Cheetos. Personal bag. All gone. But, instead of having the feeling of disappointment and resigning myself to 'I ate something bad so I might as well eat ____', I am just going to proceed with my plan of a bean and kale soup and be ok to slip up. I am no longer allowing this to become a reason to forget all my hard work and eat badly for the rest of the night or weekend! I have learned it is about making choices and making more good choices than bad.

So here is me raising my water glass to good choices!

The Day After

Dad: "So, what are you going to eat now that this is over? Everything?"
Me: "I hope not."

What will I be eating? Here is lunch. Cauliflower, asparagus and some chicken. And it taste really good :-)
